First Birthday Party!

Jon Klassen - Party Animals

I want to thank everyone for one great year at Animalarium.
It has been a lot of fun to share and discover all these artworks
in the company of people who share similar interests, loves and obsessions!

From the Animal's Party by Elisabeth Brozowska, 1962
thanks to Eric Sturdevant

I can't possibly thank all the very lovely people who have helped and inspired me from the start,
but I'd like to mention at least some of the awesome fellow bloggers who have given me 
great support and encouragement in many different ways: Amy at Aqua-Velvet,

and the great image collectors at flickr who have generously allowed me to 
utilize their treasures, particularly the amazing Sandy (and her Pink Jet Pack), art.crazed

and of course all the artists who daily produce beautiful works in all media,
especially the very dear Franco Matticchio for sharing here his incredible drawings,
(many of which previously hard to find or unpublished)
and Sebastiano, my accomplice on fifteen years in love and work 
for always supporting my solitary endeavours

from Favourite Bedtime stories, 1977, thanks to Flamenconut

and everyone else who has commented,suggested, quoted, blogged, retweeted,
reposted, tumblrized, ffffound, bookmarked, networked, emailed,  
asked and answered questions, sent pictures, interviewed, favorited, complimented,
thank you and see you tomorrow for the Mystery Corean Giveaway!


  1. Thank You Laura for this wonderful first year and for all the hard work you have put into your blog and Tumblr! Thank You for sharing all your beautiful discoveries and inspiring finds, I enjoy them all.

    PS - Lisa Paclet's Ursonate
    is one of the nicest things I've come across on the web :)

  2. Me ha encantado pasar por este blog tan bonito. Algunos dibujos mehan dado ideas ya que soy muy aficionada a la pintura y algunos dias no tengo tema que se me ocurra. Mis felicitaciones y un saludo cariñoso. Victoria.
